“Repairer of the breach”
Isaiah 58 has always had special significance for Jan. After receiving salvation and the baptism in the Holy Spirit all in one night, this thirteen-year-old boy’s life would never be the same again. Soon after that Jan attended their local church’s retreat where at the first night the Pastor of the church, Ben van Wyk called Jan forward. Pastor Ben anointed Jan’s hands from a bowl of oil and said: “From this day forward God will use you to lay your hands on people to receive the gift of the Holy Spirit.” When Jan put his hands on the people standing in a big circle, God’s power was released, and many people received the gift of the Spirit. After the meeting one of the young prophets came to Jan and gave him Isaiah 58:1 as his call into full-time ministry. Years later Jan saw himself in the Word reading verse 12 “repairer of the breach.” Jan is a reformer, restorer, builder, called into Apostolic Ministry to equip and reform the church to represent Christ accurately to the World.
